Windows Azure is a platform that can handle a range of languages and applications, including Java. Azure offers a set of services such as NoSQL table storage, blob storage, queues, relational databases, and access controls, letting developers build their core application and leaving the platform to worry about underlying services. In this session, David Chou will lift the covers on Azure, showing how to build a scalable application within a traditional JVM while inheriting the performance, resiliency, and elasticity that clouds promise.
